Playing with Pennants and Banners

This week Hand Stamped Sentiments is having a Banner Bash!  Create any paper craft project using banners or pennants.  I’ve been wanting to use my new Halloween stamp set Howl-o-Ween Creeps so here’s a sneak peek of one of the monster images and sentiments.  This set is so much fun!  I can’t wait to create more Halloween items with this set.  I stamped the Frankenstein image on water color paper then used a blender pen and ink pads to color him.  I punched him out with 1-3/4 inch circle punch and sponged the edges with Basic Black ink.  Since the theme for the challenge is pennants I decided to create one large pennant using the Perfect Pennants die for the front of my card.  I then printed with My Digital Studio the DSP layers.  I used Cast a Spell and the Night Owl Digital kit.  I hope you’re inspired to start thinking about your fall and Halloween projects.  The Howl-o-Ween Creeps stamp set will be available on September 1st.

For Dad

Later this month is father’s day and to celebrate dad or that special guy in your life Hand Stamped Sentiment’s challenge this week is father’s day/masculine cards.

Hand Stamped Sentiments challenge #70

The idea for my Dad card from a picture frame.  I wanted to put each letter in DAD in a frame.  The Curly Label punch fit the bill.  I punched three shapes from the Newsprint DSP and six black ones from Basic Black card stock.  These I used to frame the Newsprint ones.  The next step was to texture the metal sheet with the Perfect Detail Texturz Plate.  The letters are die cut using my Big Shot and the Naturally Serif Sizzlits Decorative Strip Die.  I die cut a Basic Black and Riding Hood Red set.  I used the Basic Black letters as a shadow.  I also used the Buttons #5 Sizzlits to die cut some buttons from the Newprint DSP, Basic Black CS and Riding Hood Red CS  I used Hemp Twine for the buttons.  This card came together very easily.  Hop on over to Hand Stamped Sentiments and upload your manly card.  We’d love to see it!
